Ok, no offense to anyone that submitted photos, but why would you submit "family" type photos/portraits for a credit union calendar? One would think they'd be looking for photos that represent the area.
I voted for some (yours were very nice), even though I've never been to your state (except fo a layover in the D/FW airport in 1976!
I had already looked at the pics before you mentioned your numbers, but you're included in the ones I voted for! I too prefer the scenery shots. Really liked the tractor, even though it looked like it may have been hit with paint balls.
My understanding is that the 12 winning photos will be on the 2013 calendar. I'm hoping for at least one of the months!
I'm not photographic artist, so it takes 100 shots to get 1 good one. Sometimes after I transfer the photos from my camera to my computer I then see the best shot. The tree stump/wood fence in the snow...went back that evening for that one after looking at the dozen or so I took that morning. Had an "Ah-ha!" moment when I saw the shot I should've taken. It's hit or miss with me, but I think at least one of mine is good enough for the calendar. Hopefully.
Loved the winter fence and the pink sky. I think the pink sky one could be anywhere in Texas and will remind people of home. I did vote for the father and little girl I thought it would make a good JUNE picture. I did not vote on the tractor because I thought it was more a painting the a photo.
edit- Good luck Sherry. I voted for yours first, all of them! they were good.This message has been edited. Last edited by: Happy Erme,
